Special terms and conditions: Background music streaming licence for educational establishments

The purpose of this agreement is to expand the licence holder’s valid Background Music Licence to cover activities taking place in an online environment as defined in the terms and conditions below. The licence granted with this agreement allows the music played publicly in an educational institution to also be streamed to students participating in the activities online.

This licence will only be granted and valid if the customer has a valid Background Music Licence.

With this music licence agreement and on behalf of Gramex, GT Musiikkiluvat grants a permit for the background music played in the licence holder’s educational institution in connection with its activities to be streamed simultaneously to students participating in the activities online.

With this licence agreement, the licence holder agrees with Gramex upon the compensation to be paid to the performing artists and producers of the recordings for communicating the recordings to an audience in accordance with the licence terms and conditions.

A ‘student’ refers to a person who has the opportunity to participate in the activities organised by the educational institution physically on site and who participates in the activities mainly at the educational institution and only occasionally online.

Streaming of the recordings to an audience shall take place in a closed online environment, on a website or other platform managed by the licence holder where access to the streamed content is restricted to students of the educational institution only. Platforms covered by the licence are listed on the GT Musiikkiluvat website. However, the licence does not cover the streaming of recordings to an audience via social media platforms (e.g. Facebook, Instagram, YouTube).

The maximum number of recipients of the content is 5,000 people per streaming event. A maximum of 60 minutes of recorded music can be played during one streaming event. A maximum of two pieces of music can be played from the same artist or band during one streaming event.

This licence is experimental and available for now. GT Musiikkiluvat has the right to amend, remove and add conditions applicable to the licence by notifying the licence holder five weeks in advance.

This licence is applicable to communicating music to an audience in Finland. The licence holder must prevent the stream from being accessed by users in countries not covered by the licence.
